daddy is home... for good!

Sitting here thinking about stuff. My stuff, my year. My highlight is definitely Landon... and that he has never had to watch his daddy walk out the door 5 days a week, and he never will. I don't have to console Trace as Daddy drives away every morning anymore either...... And let's be honest, I can actually shut the bathroom door and not have a little one walk in on me....... Because Bryan is home with us. I can't even. I can't even! 

TIME FREEDOM is sooooo underrated (... and I'll never understand why)! I see so many people love their jobs, or their husbands love their jobs, but they love their days off just that much more. What if everyday could feel like a day off? What. If.

2015 has brought me life changing gifts and all I want is for you to know that dreams you don't even know to dream, I am dreaming for you! You can live life by your own design. It's okay to dream big for yourself and your family. It's okay to break rules, color outside the lines and do things differently. It's okay to feel at peace. It's okay to know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that your future is so so bright. Be all in. It's worth it on every dang level.......

our 1st softball game as a family of 4

Bryan has always played softball. He's actually the one who puts the team together every season. Trace is old enough to understand and he's obsessed with watching Bryan play. "Daddy hit" is all we here over and over again. And he yells "Daaaaaaaaaaaddy" over and over and over when Bryan's up to bat or in the outfield. So cute! But tonight it was Landon's entry into the world of adult softball and I think he's going to be a fan too!

landon sits

He was about a week into his 6th month of life and while outside on the grass decided that it was a good time to sit. It was a little wobbly and shakey, but he did it, and he kept doing it all day... Go baby Landon go!

6 months - landon nash

6 month as of October 6, 2015

Clothes: 3-6 and 6-9 month

Health: His eczema is all cleared up and is in perfect health. He does always seem congested (even though there's nothing in his nose or throat) so I'm going to keep an eye on it... this has been going on since birth, so I don't know if it's just him or his tonsils or what

Diet: Landon has dropped a feeding and is eating 6-7oz (mostly 6oz) at 7am, 10:45am, 3pm and he gets his last bottle of the night, which is 7-8oz, at around 7pm. We also started baby food at 6 months. I've made organic purees out of gala apples, pink lady apples, pears, bananas, carrots, sweet potatoes, beats, avacados, green beans and peas. Landon loves everything expect for the green beans, and honestly, I tried everything and the green beans really are awful. Even when mixing them with other baby foods they're just gross, so I tossed them ha! I wasn't as much of a stickler to the rules this time, so I didn't try everything out for 3 days and wait for an allergy. Nope! I dove head first and mixed all of his baby foods up daily and he's fine with them all.

Sleep:  Woohoo, Landon sleeps 12 hours straight through the night now! This is a brand new thing and it's about time, haha! He's currently fast asleep in his crib around 7-7:30pm and he wakes up around 7-7:30am. It's wonderful for everyone and he and Trace are on the same schedule now, so Bryan and I basically divide and concur. I am with Landon and Bryan is with Trace at night right now.

 Baby Gear Love: Ergo, jumper, Sophie giraffe, stroller, car seat (so unexpected and so awesome!)

Likes: smiling, smiling with tongue out, car rides with the hood to his car seat back so he can see both Trace and out the window, eating baby food, rolling over, Trace, being held by Mommy, being rocked in his rocking hair with his back patted, bath time, being worn, sleeping on someone

Dislikes: not getting his way, diaper changes, losing a toy

 Landon, I'm sorry, but you are such a weeny (as Daddy calls you). You are a sissy la la and a huge baby. You whine for everything. You have the biggest tears when you cry and you've perfected the pout. 

Milestones: dropped a bottle and are down to 4, eats baby food, sits up, rolls over, sleeps through the night, laughs hard, can see really far

Landon, You are a true baby in every sense of the word. You are the perfect child for me, as knowing you are my last, I just want to snuggle and squeeze you all day long, and lucky for me, you let me. You actually want it. You love to be held and you have a way of looking through me still.... it's incredible. You and your brother are really starting to interact more and it's so fun to watch your relationship blossom. Example: You really used to hate car rides. You just cried and screamed and were so unhappy. But one day I told Daddy to push back your hood on your car seat so that you could see Trace (and maybe Trace would entertain you a little)... it worked! You love being able to see your brother in the back seat and you just stare at him with those big blue eyes of yours. I'm so excited watch your friendship with him unfold...

2nd annual harbor island beach vacation

We went on our annual family beach vacation back in September and had a magical week playing in the ocean, soaking in the sun, laughing like crazy and even appreciating the cloudy days!
